Trivia

The character of MI6 Agent Fields (Gemma Arterton) in Quantum of Solace (2008) is a tribute to the Bond girls of the 1960s, notably Tracy Bond from On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) and Goldfinger (1964)'s Pussy Galore, both of which are Atherton's favorite performances. Gemma Arterton described Fields as "not as frolicsome or femme-fatale as other Bond girls, but is instead fresh and young."

Strawberry Fields, one of the Bond girls in Quantum of Solace (2008), was previously also the same name of a character thirty years earlier in the Beatles movie musical Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978) played by Sandy Farina. In this movie, her character was derived from the Beatles Song "Strawberry Fields Forever". Strawberry Fields in this context refers to the Liverpool Salvation Army Orphanage near where John Lennon spent his childhood.

Originally, Agent Fields' character (played by Gemma Arterton) was known as Strawberry Fields, but is only referred to as Agent Fields throughout the movie. She has red hair, like strawberries. Strawberry Fields can be considered a typical Ian Fleming-esque moniker. Arterton has reportedly based her character on a number of 1960s Bond Girls, particularly Pussy Galore and Tracy di Vicenzo, on whose hairstyle Arterton based Fields' hair on.

To prepare for her role as Camille in Quantum of Solace (2008), Olga Kurylenko spent three weeks training with weapons and learned how to fight and body fly, a form of indoor skydiving. Kurylenko dislikes filming stunts, but Daniel Craig's compassion helped her to carry them out. Kurylenko also trained with a dialect coach to perform with a Spanish accent, which was easy since "she has a good ear and can imitate people." She was also given a DVD box set of all the 007 films since the Bond franchise was not well-known in her homeland of Ukraine.
